The standup paddleboarding craze has officially reached new heights—an altitude of 12,500 feet, to be exact. When Peruvian fitness enthusiast Alvaro Bedoya launched SUP Cusco in Lake Piuray, he created the highest-altitude paddling tours in the world; skydivers regularly make the leap from the same elevation. Today, travelers and athletes alike—including the Peruvian national soccer team—head to the highlands for training programs that blend CrossFit, yoga, and low-impact paddles around the picturesque lake.
